  1. Hello, I'm a beginner, making progress but slowly. I'm getting better at making selections, masks and layers but keep having the following problem. I'm working on a photo that was taken in terrible lighting conditions. Seascape, sea, islands far out and sky. I have made separate selections for the sky, the sea and all the land (foreground and islands). There are in separate layers with corresponding adjustments and each, separately, looks fine. However, when I view all together, there are "halos" between the sky and sea and sky and land. Is there a way that I can either avoid it in the first place or fix it now? I have looked through the book and tried many things but simply can't find anything that works. Best regards to all, Robin
  2. I'm pretty new and am beginning to create artwork for t-shirts. But I'm actually scanning in hand-drawn pen and ink artwork and then cleaning it up in Affinity Photo. I can get rid of the background with the selection tool, but realized today that there are remnants left on the edges and am not sure how to clean this up. I don't need it to be completely crisp and clean. But these light remnants look awful when the artwork is on a colored background. I've attached three screenshots: 1. Edges.jpg shows the "halo" around the edges. I want to eliminate the light color on the outer and inner edges (not the gold fill inside). 2. & 3. Edges2.jpg and Edges3.jpg show examples clearly with black and red ink and the remnants. Can you please tell me how to fix this? Thanks for your help. Susan
  3. This GENIUS figured out a method that does edge-aware sharpening. The method is to do edge-detection on the image, and then using the detected edges as a mask to avoid sharpening the edges. It lets you massively sharpen textures while completely avoiding all halos around edges and it is the most amazing thing I have seen in a decade of photography. It's the biggest revolution since the invention of the Unsharp Mask. This technique is like the Yin to Unsharp Mask's Yang. The results are preferrable almost 100% of the time you want an unsharp mask. Because "haloed edges" are the bane of sharpened photos. If this is implemented, I would probably never use the regular Unsharp Mask again. Please consider creating a new "Edge-Aware Unsharp Mask" filter, which internally does all the work of finding edges and avoiding them when sharpening. So that we can keep all of the non-destructive power workflows of Affinity Photo, but still achieve this AMAZINGLY USEFUL new effect. www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVgfbiH4-fw PS: I don't see the embedded video above. If someone has the same problem, type this URL manually instead, to see the technique: youtube.com/watch?v=iVgfbiH4-fw PPS: Here is how to currently achieve this in Affinity Photo, with many minutes of very destructive pixel-based steps: youtube.com/watch?v=7EVXy6fc_rE This incredible technique begs for a built-in non-destructive filter.
  4. Hi there, I noticed a potential problem with (premultiplied?) alpha/ transparency in some TIFF files. For example loading "Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/ProductPageIcon_512x512.tiff" (Sorry, I can't attach the original file to this report for obvious copyright reasons ;) ) shows the typical and unwanted black halo pixel effect in Affinity Photo. OS X's own Preview.app displays the very same file properly, see attached screenshot. I'm not entirely sure this is a bug in Affinity or not. In case it isn't I would appreciate a tip how to fix this problem when it happens. :)

    Halo between layers

    When I have layers that have snapped to each other there is still a gap that shows the layer below it. In the attached set of screen captures you can see the red background showing between the gray and the other colors. As shown with 100%, 200%, 400%, 800% and 1600% zoom this leak of the background layer stays about the same. Seeing as they are rectangles at zero degrees rotation it shouldn't be due to any antialiasing. In the yellow I have even added a small centered stroke. I find I need to make the centered stroke to be 0.55 pt to get rid of the red halo, which when zoomed in is really noticeable. And seems to affect any edge controlled fx I use.
